Shields@Noon in TrYC – November 18th

After a disastrous and eventually cancelled race last week we repeated the courses, 2 laps of C3 and X1. The prblems were not to blame LL, but a known SL group that didn’t communicate previously for an event in Triumphal and after a quick arrangement in last hour to acommodate both events (our races starting at 12:00 and their parade starting at 12:15) they simply ignored the arrangement a filled the sim with boats and start the parade only 1 hour after.

Back to race, dunno if the last week had some influence, but only Paul came this week, resulting in 2 races with only 2 boats.

In first, C3, I made a fault on Paul, after excusing and paying my penalty, wasn’t imposible to catch him again. Congrats Paul.

X1 was much better until I lost control of boat after a sim cross, broken cam, and no control at all, unable to turn boat or any other task, until ground way out of course.

  1. Only 2 boats in the race? 😦
    And what group is holding silly parades in Triumphal while the adults are racing? This is a yacht club ffs!!! Does Trap know about it?

    • Yes Trap was there… and the group, those RP Gamerds called “coasties”. And not only they ignored our last minute arrangement, as they ignored the board saying that at saturdays at Noon we had the races there.

      Chris and me were really pissed with the mess they made.

      When I arrived in 1st race, I had to find a way among those huge ships. I don’t have a pic of it, but a bit worse than VOR in Lisbon Inport race

      • Ja, Lisbon inport race was spectacular. These VOR 65s are not slow. And they are made for reeling in the miles cross ocean, going straight for weeks without a single maneuver. To race them in between the undisciplined spectator boats was surely frightening for skippers and crews.

        SLCG is 😮
        They have so many stations all over the grid. Why do they feel the need to stage a parade in the Dunais, at the end of the world?
